The Variation of Animals and Plants Under Domestication: Charles Darwin 1809-1882

Sub-series of: Foundations of Natural HistoryIn response to the outrage that followed the publication of On the Origin of Species in 1859, and the criticism that species were distinct in creation, Darwin set about constructing final and absolute proof for his theories. Based on a wide array of sources, from skins and from skeletons, from scientific journals and breeding manuals, Darwin assembled a mass of proof - and a hypothesis about species reversion that risked his reputation anew. This compilation of this thorough and intensive research, published in 1868, made new revolutionary claims, and provided the foundation for our current understanding of evolution.
